may be worth a second look. first there's exercise physiologist. this field includes professionals involved with illness and injury prevention, rehabilitation, personal trainers and recreational therapists. they sport an average annual salary of nearly $42,700. then there's market research analyst. they design surveys and break down statistical data to help companies track consumer spending and find the best way to sell products and services. the demand for market research analyst should grow by 32% over the next 8 years which means their average annual salary $85,460 here in the bay area will go up, too. a career in either of these unsung positions certainly seems a lot more interesting than plastics. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. a baby gorilla celebrated her first birthday at the san
